Grand Seiko GMT Photomontage  0 Comments


Clearly much has been already said about this watch here over the past weeks so further adjectives will hardly add any understanding to the watch. So I am very glad to share here these images for collectors who are unfamiliar with the model or Grand Seiko watches.
Amongst Grand Seiko fans, its is renowned that they have the consumate ability to keep extremely accurate time to a level that I have not seen in any other mechanical watch.

Having been drawn to it myself for its austere classic looks (it reminds me of the early seventies and my first watch I ever owned), I am still impressed by Grand Seiko's level of finishing quality and materials (despite having seen the whole spectrum of Swiss luxury watches). While this model does not have an open back where many judge the level of finish, one only has to look closely at the dial, hands, markers and case work of this watch to know that Seiko has not spared any expense to perfect the watch. Just look at how well the deployant is made and finished.

One lasting impression of this particular model is the dial material and colour. It looks very much like enamel and its almost translucent. Some have even described it as "liquid finish". Described as ivory or cream coloured, this dial does not affect the readability of the hands and markers. Even though there are no luminscent paint - for which I am very thankful - as such material tends to flake and deteriorate over time, the time is very readable due to the fine faceting of the markers and hands.
I confidently expect that these watches will last more than one lifetime with minimal service and support needed.
